Function std.demangle.demangle

Demangle D mangled names.

string demangle (
  string name
) pure nothrow @safe;


name the mangled name


A string. If it is not a D mangled name, it returns its argument name.


// int b in module a
writeln(demangle("_D1a1bi")); // "int a.b"
// char array foo in module test
writeln(demangle("_D4test3fooAa")); // "char[]"


This program reads standard in and writes it to standard out, pretty-printing any found D mangled names.
